It’s not too late to use your 2018 airline fee credits. And now is the perfect time to get an American Express card with an airline fee credit. That’s because the credit is based on calendar year rather than your cardmember (or annual fee) year. You still gave time to get the card in 2018 and use the 2018 fee credit and then once January 2019 rolls around you can use the fee credit again. This means you’d get the airline fee credit twice in your first annual fee year.
Former Air France KLM CEO and current head of trade association IATA, the International Air Transport Association, explains slower growth in airline passenger travel
I used to think that New York JFK – Hong Kong and Dallas – Dubai, flights I’ve taken multiple times, were extraordinarily long. Now they’re not in the top 20 by distance.
In fact there are 26 flights that travel more than 8000 miles. Here are the longest flights in the world. How many do you know?
A roundup of the most important stories of the day. I keep you up to date on the most interesting writings I find on other sites – the latest news and tips.
Many young boys dream of growing up to be pilots. Some of them become pilots without ever giving up being 15 year old boys.
Yesterday I wrote about American Airlines Executive Vice President of People, Communications, and Public Affairs Elise Eberwein flying United in first class. She wrote a trip report on twitter documenting the experience.
Subsequently she’s shared one more detail about the flight, and I hope she does more than just write about it on twitter. She needs to bring the insight back to the American Airlines management team: the flight had no seat back video and she couldn’t watch United’s streaming inflgiht entertainment.
LifeMiles has largely taken over the old US Airways role as the ‘official consolidator of Star Alliance premium class seats’. If there are excess seats on a Star Alliance airline, those airlines are — in effect — selling distressed inventory to LifeMiles members at a discount.
Here are (4) great ways to generate LifeMiles quickly that are available right now. Two are limited-time offers, and one is brand new.
A JetBlue gate agent had people book the cheapest flight available — usually Long Beach to Las Vegas — and then rebooked those passengers for more expensive international travel.
She did this 505 times for more than 100 people between July 1, 2016 and Sept. 27, 2017, treating the customers as though they had missed flights “or experienced a death in the family.” The agent was arrested on Thursday and charged with wire fraud in federal court.
Patrisha Organo is a flight attendant for Philippine Airlines. On Tuesday she was scheduled for her check flight in order to qualify as a Cabin Crew Evaluator. On board a baby was crying. She approached the mother. The baby was hungry, but she didn’t have any formula.
She never once claimed to only be there for the flight’s safety.
